The design for a 10-story, 165-unit residential building on the site of a former Jehovah’s Witnesses-owned parking garage at 80 Adams St. in DUMBO has been made public, and 6sqft.com describes it as a “broken-up, playful facade that figures in plenty of outdoor space.”

The design, crafted by ODA New York architects, resembles a group of square building blocks, but with glass fronts stacked on top of each other. The building, according to 6sqft.com, will be mostly residential, but will also include a pool, a fitness center, a residential lounge, a roof deck, parking space and a library. It will be within walking distance of Brooklyn Bridge Park. Buyer Jeffrey Gershon of Hope Street Capital closed the $60 million deal in November.
